My book is 606 pages long. It is a single file plus the .ind file and125 pdf illustrations.
Here are the packages used:
Typeset time as reported by "time":
that is, 3 secs. pdf file is 4.4 MB.
Now if I use the microtype package( the book is now 3 pages shorter):
typesetting is over 35 secs. pdf file is 4.6 MB.
My iMac has 8GB memory; the whole ms with illustrations is
tiny in comparison: about 40 MB.
Anything I could do to speed up this typesetting?
